英文摘要: Particulate air pollution in the Kathmandu Valley has reached severe levels that are mainly due to uncontrolled emissions and the location of the urban area in a bowl-shaped basin with associated local wind circulations. The AERONET measurements from December 2012 to August 2014 revealed a mean aerosol optical depth (AOD) of approximately 0.30 at 675 nm during winter, which is similar to that of the post-monsoon but half of that of the pre-monsoon AOD (0.63). The distinct seasonal variations are closely related to regional-scale monsoon circulations over South Asia and emissions in the Kathmandu Valley. During the SusKat-ABC campaign (December 2012-February 2013), a noticeable increase in both aerosol scattering (sigma(s); 313 -> 577 Mm(-1) at 550 nm) and absorption (sigma(a); 98 -> 145 Mm(-1) at 520 nm) coefficients occurred before and after 4 January 2013. This can be attributed to the increase in wood-burned fires due to a temperature drop and the start of firing at nearby brick kilns. The sigma(s) value in the Kathmandu Valley was a factor of 0.5 lower than that in polluted cities in India. The sigma(a) value in the Kathmandu Valley was approximately 2 times higher than that at severely polluted urban sites in India. The aerosol mass scattering efficiency of 2.6 m(2) g(-1) from PM10 measurements in the Kathmandu Valley is similar to that reported in urban areas. However, the aerosol mass absorption efficiency was determined to be 11 m(2) g(-1) from PM10 measurements, which is higher than that reported in the literature for pure soot particles (7.5 +/- 1.2 m(2) g(-1)). This might be due to the fact that most of the carbonaceous aerosols in the Kathmandu Valley were thought to be mostly externally mixed with other aerosols under dry conditions due to a short travel time from their sources. The sigma(s) and sigma(a) values and the equivalent black carbon (EBC) mass concentration reached up to 757 Mm(-1), 224 Mm(-1), and 29 mu gm(-3) at 08:00 LST (local standard time), respectively but decreased dramatically during the daytime (09:00-18:00 LST), to one-quarter of the morning average (06:00-09:00 LST) due to the development of valley winds and an atmospheric bounder layer. The sigma(s) and sigma(a) values and the EBC concentration remained almost constant during the night at the levels of 410 Mm(-1), 130 Mm(-1), and 17 mu g m(-3), respectively. The average aerosol direct radiative forcings over the intensive measurement period were estimated to be -6.9 +/- 1.4 Wm(-2) (top of the atmosphere) and -20.8 +/- 4.6 W m(-2) (surface). Therefore, the high at-mospheric forcing (i.e., 13.9 +/- 3.6 Wm(-2)) and forcing efficiency (74.8 +/- 24.2 Wm(-2) tau(-1)) can be attributed to the high portion of light-absorbing aerosols in the Kathmandu Valley, as indicated by the high black carbon (or elemental carbon) to sulphate ratio (1.5 +/- 1.1).
